Mombelli's Intergalactic Bass Programme free pdf Learning scales and arpeggios is a vital part of learning music. However, if each time you played a scale or arpeggio with a different set of fingerings, it would take longer to learn as too much unnecessary information is confusing and time-consuming. Bassist, composer and educator, Dr Carlo Mombelli, searched for a book on 'Scales and Arpeggios' to use as teaching material for his students. Finding many books on the subject, he found that none of them notated the fingerings in a clear and correct format. Most had either too much unnecessary information or, little - or none - at all. So, Carlo wrote a book specially for his students and, on realising the positive effect, he decided to publish it. The Scales: for the sake of keeping things simple and uncluttered, each page consists of one scale type only, drawn on a bass guitar neck with the correct fingering, a vital part in organising the hands. The harmonic structure of the scale appears on the same page, along with the chord family and other relevant information, such as passing tones, tritons, chord progressions, etc. The theory: playing scales and arpeggios, without the knowledge of how to apply them, will remain a purely technical exercise. The bonus of this book is in the Jazz Theory Crash Course, which does not aim to draw a student into playing jazz but rather to provide them with a deeper understanding of harmony and the knowledge of how to apply the scales in this book to his/her own music, and music in general. Another bonus is that this jazz section does not use a single music dot on manuscript paper but employs the use of blocks and other diagrams. Mombelli has managed to explain jazz theory by getting to the absolute essence of the language. This book is of value to those who know how to read music and those who don't. This system will enable anyone to access the information in the book and even though Dr Mombelli teaches music at a university, he has created an un-academic, practical and comprehensive work that will make it easy for all to understand the language of music.
